Burberry Spring 2017 Lookbook

Christopher Bailey had invitations for the Burberry show set in pocket-size pieces of stone this season, a nod to Henry Moore, the renowned British sculptor who inspired the collection. The brand presented its first see-now-buy-now collection last September at the former Foyles, the landmark London bookstore, and this time around the space was stripped bare of its bookish charm to accommodate several of Moore’s monolithic figures on the runway. Those impressive, feminine forms were a clear sign of the shift in proportions to come, one that would ultimately reconfigure the traditionalist dimensions of the trenchcoat, along with all the other Britishisms in a Burberry wardrobe.
